I think that was the first night of an eight night stand at The Academy of Music in downtown Manhattan. I went to two of those shows. I think the 23rd and 25th if memory serves.

I read a review of that show that said it was heavy on Hell's Angels -- 30-40 rows of them, or something like that? Is that how you remember it?

edit: BVD, would still be interested in what you recall. Mr. Needs-His-Meds below put up a historically interesting poster, and I'd be curious to hear from someone who isn't about to go poof from anger.

AR, you'll get no vitriolic anger from me . . . I'm still chuckling over your 'Bob Weir on the web' posting.

Dick's Picks #30 features part of that 3/72 NYC Hell's Angels' Benefit show on disc 1, and the booklet has a newspaper article and interview with Jerry where he talks about the long relationship that he and the Dead had with the Angels'. They obviously hit a chord within a wide variety of souls . . .

Althea. Upon further memory jogging The shows that I attended during that run were the 23rd and pretty sure the 26th. Even though the H.A. benefit was on the 25th the place was crawling with them on the 26th. I was standing in the walkway behind the orchestra section when a six foot eight Hells Angel came up to me and said he wanted to buy my boda bag. Now I'm a 17 yr old hippie kid zonked on mucho mics of LSD and feeling a bit threatened. I protested by saying "Ah c'mon man it was a gift from my brother." "Gimme the fuckin' bag!" I reluctantly handed it over and he gave me a dollar. Before I could say anything else he had taken the top piece off and squeezed about half of the bag into his mouth, the contents containing passion pink Ripple and 50 crushed up barrels of orange sunshine. I got the fuck outa there toot sweet!! After the show as I was walking out I saw him sitting in a corner staring at his hands. Musically what I remember most was TOO and Big Boss Man. These were only my fourth and fifth shows. During TOO they shined a spot on a spinning mirror ball and it seemed like it was in sync with the music. On the 23rd they used it during Dark Star. Pretty cool. Sorry I don't remember more. I guess I'll have to break down and pick up DP30.

Fascinating. That's pretty darned good recollection, under the circumstances! Funny about the Hell's Angel. I hope he was thinking, "These hands are not meant for violence," and you are inadvertently responsible for turning him into a Buddhist. Of course, he could have been thinking, "Whoa, I can crush BONES with these hands!"

Good find indeed my friend, I guess they meant to exclude March of 1972 from the question.
